Half Life 2 has the potential to be the greatest multiplayer ever. What I just played for 4 hours straight was really, really, extremely fun, but needs alot of work.
Here are a couple notes I took while playing. They are personal preference except for the first which is The magnum is way too powerful. I had 100health and 50hev and still went down after just one shot from that gun it seemed. It should at least be renamed to the BFG.
- Rocket Splash Damage is not powerful enough.
- Explosive barrels tossed from the gravity gun should do more damage
- Shotgun should be more powerful. Too many survivors of alt-fire double blasts
- Crowbar should be instant hit
I know I know I know. "So basically you're asking us to make it more like Half Life 1?" . Yes! Yes I am!
Here are some pretty funny screens of me owning My Documents. She made a comment that deserved this and I made sure that I was mashing the screenshot key as I did it. It felt good :)
Half Life 2 deathmatch rules. This patch was released and there was a technical difficulty keeping many from playing it.
Gary McTaggart made this post at about 2am: http://www.shacknews.com/ja.zz?id=9108594 telling folks that they were working on it. Just around an hour after he made that post, it was fixed. If that is not support then I do not know what support is. Thanks valve.
